Timeform pick out three bets from Kenilworth and Turffontein on Tuesday.

"The formbook suggests this should be World Mission’s day..."


World Mission - Kenilworth 12:05

World Mission looks good value in the circumstances and brings the best form to the table after a third at Scottsville in June and a quarter length second to Black Belt over the Durbanville mile earlier this month. Although that form is yet to be tested, his earlier sixth has seen two of those ahead of him win next time out to suggest it was an above average race, and although there has been plenty of money for Greenstreettractor, the formbook suggests this should be World Mission's day.

Midnight Moonlight - Kenilworth 14:25

Midnight Moonlight is a lightly raced daughter of Jay Peg who has plenty of room to improve further at the age of three after just the trio of starts. A win here over seven furlongs was followed by a second to Merysagos over this course and distance followed by a length and a half second again, this time to Dynamic Diana on her handicap debut at Durbanville. Left on the same rating of 85 this afternoon, Bernard Fayd'herbe will probably have to put up a pound overweight but he is worth every ounce and Midnight Moonlight should put in a bold effort again this afternoon.

Alileo - Turffontein 18:25

Alileo gets in here off bottom weight for on-fire trainer Mike de Kock and looks very well treated in the circumstances. After winning on her debut here on the inner track the daughter of Captain Al followed up in a handicap over the same six furlongs before a respectable third to Secret Star in a Class A stakes over the same C&D. Last time out she failed to get home over the seventh furlong in the Grade Two Joburg Spring Challenge won by Bella Sonata, but will be a lot happier dropped back to this trip, and in this class Alileo looks difficult to oppose.
